“Thank You” to Our Employees!

We believe our employees are our greatest asset. Without the men and women that make the gears turn behind the scenes, our reach would be limited. It is only through the dedication and hard work of our team that we are able to successfully grow, provide more value to our customers and change more lives through our work.

 

So today, on National Employee Appreciation day, we want to say thank you to all of our employees that stand with us as an integral part of the PM Company team. You all have taken on the PMC vision as your own, and we are grateful for your contribution to our business, day in and day out.

 

We asked employees in three different departments to answer a few questions that show their perspective as they work in this industry. Enjoy their answers below!

 

Lisa Collins, Marketing Strategist at PMC

What do you enjoy about the industry you are in?

“I’m fascinated by the way commercial real estate is an indicator of the economy. I never looked at it that way until I came to work for PMC. If new business is investing here, that means our economy is still moving in a positive direction. Even though we have a couple of big, empty buildings in our area right now, major companies are still looking at us. That’s a great sign.”

 

What does a “win” look like for you?

“A win for PMC is a tenant who is happy with their location and their service.  A win is a client who feels we’re always a step ahead in looking out for their interests. For me personally, as a brand builder for the company, a win is when people recognize PMC as a professional, thoughtful organization made up of people who care about making this valley a better place to live and do business.”

 

What gets you through the hard days?

“At the moment? Seeing that Starbucks in progress outside our front window!”

 

Kelly Cale, Banquet Captain at Grand Pointe Conference & Reception Center

What do you enjoy about the industry you are in?

“I enjoy learning as much as I can about the banquet/restaurant/hospitality industry.  I enjoy striving to be the best that I can be in an ever changing industry. Each event is different and unique in its own way.  Each event pushes you to learn something new, whether you’re learning about the AV system, or what gluten free is.”

 

What does a “win” look like for you?

“A “win” for me is when every single guest leaves Grand Pointe smiling and full of compliments. Another win would be when a group re-books because of the excellent  service and food that they experienced at Grand Pointe.”

 

What gets you through the hard days?

“We have a lot of long days. What gets me through the hard days is meeting with my team. We take about 30 minutes out of each shift and go over each event as well as our personal lives. It’s important to me that my team knows that I truly care for their health and wellbeing inside and outside of work. If they need someone to talk to, I am confident that they know that any one of our team would listen and help them in whatever way they can.”

 

Stanley Durrett, Maintenance Staff at PMC

What do you enjoy about the industry you are in?

“I like the diversity of the work. I have set things I have to get done, but things can change quickly, which I like.”

 

What does a “win” look like for you?

“When everyone works together as a team and gets things done. This morning, I needed help with something and called a fellow employee to come help. He came right away and we got it done.”

 

What gets you through the hard days?

“I just try to keep a positive attitude and stay flexible.”

 

We are so thankful for every one of our employees. They carry on our vision here at PMC to value each relationship, whether client, tenant, employee or vendor, and to provide superior customer service.

Thank you, PMC and Grande Pointe employees. We could not do this without you!

Spirit of Giving 2017 Smashes Records

The PM Company has announced their 10th annual Spirit of Giving fundraising has broken all previous records, with the total raised exceeding $50,000.  PMC is matching those dollars raised in the community, bringing the total to be given to local charities to $116,000.

For the tenth year in a row, the PM Company and Minnite family elected to forego traditional gifts to tenants and vendors with whom they do business, giving the money instead to area non-profits.

PMC created the Spirit of Giving Fund at the Parkersburg Area Community Foundation, and they invite those businesses to join them in raising funds and awareness for the designated charities.  The PM Company then matches the money raised. “This is the perfect way for us to come together with our business associates and friends, to demonstrate the spirit of the season,” said Karmyn Minnite Conley, one of the Managing Partners. “We look forward to this gift-giving all year, because we get to benefit so many important efforts.”

Spirit of Giving has donated in excess of $500,000 in the last nine years, and they planned to celebrate their 10th anniversary with their largest year ever. The goal was to raise $50,000, and match it, bringing the total to $100,000.

Student, business and civic groups were also invited to participate by collecting items from Wish Lists provided by the charities.  Donations were collected by Student United Way, Ohio Valley University, Berkshire Hathaway, Mt. State Oral Surgeons, the office of Dr. Florence, the Big Red Archery Team, Put Supplies Plus, and others.

In addition to PMC and Grand Pointe Conference and Reception Center, major sponsors for the event also included Family Carpet, Huntington Bank, Peoples Bank & Insurance, and United Bank. Each company donated $5,000 toward the effort.
